The resolution as well as the biochemical properties of the multiple molecular forms of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase, in a given tissue, may be strongly dependent upon experimental conditions of preparation (extraction of crude enzyme from tissues and fractionation procedures). In the present study, we compare the different molecular forms of cardiac (rat heart ventricle) and vascular (bovine aorta) phosphodiesterase isolated from crude extracts prepared either in sucrose medium or in hypotonic medium (in the presence of protease inhibitors and ion chelators) using two different fractionation procedures: isoelectric focusing on flat gel bed and DEAE-Trisacryl anion exchange chromatography. Both the calmodulin-dependent and the cAMP-specific forms exhibited close IEF and chromatographic patterns and showed similar sensitivities towards reference inhibitors regardless of the tissue of origin. In marked contrast, the cGMP-specific isoform notably differed from one to another tissue with respect to its biochemical properties (only the cardiac tissue being capable of stimulation by cGMP) and sensitivities to xenobiotics. Thus the possibility exists that pharmacological agents may modulate phosphodiesterase activity differentl...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
